Stosswellen in der Faszientherapie: Neue Akademie vermittelt geballtes Praxiswissen

Bei der Behandlung von Faszien kommt neben den klassischen Therapien vermehrt die Stosswellentherapie zum Einsatz – mit sehr guten Ergebnissen. Zwei Ärzte, die bereits früh damit begonnen haben, Faszien mit Stosswellen zu behandeln, sind Dr. med. Stephan Swart und Dr. med. Carlo Di Maio. Basierend auf ihren Ideen und Erfahrungen wurden in Zusammenarbeit mit STORZ MEDICAL die neuen PERI-ACTOR®-Applikatoren entwickelt, welche die Faszienbehandlung grundlegend erleichtern und optimieren. Um ihr umfangreiches Expertenwissen weiterzugeben, haben Dr. Swart und Dr. Di Maio die Fortbildungsakademie discentis gegründet.

Shock waves in fascial therapy: new academy shares in-depth practical expertise

For treating fascial structures, alongside conventional treatments, shock wave therapy is increasingly used – with excellent results. Dr Stephan Swart and Dr Carlo Di Maio are two physicians who used shock wave therapy to treat fascia-related problems early on. Based on their ideas and experiences, in collaboration with STORZ MEDICAL the new PERI-ACTOR® transmitters were developed that fundamentally facilitate and optimize fascial therapy. In order to share their comprehensive expertise, Dr Swart and Dr Di Maio have founded the discentis continuing professional development academy.

STORZ MEDICAL erhält FDA-Zulassung für den DUOLITH® SD1

STORZ MEDICAL hat die PMA (Pre Market Approval) Zulassung der US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) für den DUOLITH® SD1 als Klasse 3 erhalten*. Das innovative fokussierte Stosswellentherapiesystem hat damit die höchste FDA-Zulassungsstufe erklommen und ist in den USA ab sofort für die Behandlung von Fersenschmerzen aufgrund chronischer proximaler Plantarfasziitis** zugelassen. Infolge der Genehmigung durch die FDA Behörde werden STORZ MEDICAL und seine Partner nun mit der Markteinführung des DUOLITH® SD1 in den USA beginnen können. Gleichzeitig ist die PMA-Zulassung des Gerätes in den USA auch für andere Länder ein wichtiges Signal, bei der Behandlung der chronischen Plantarfasziitis dem DUOLITH® SD1 zu vertrauen.
